Acute and Chronic Back Pain

Acute and Chronic Back Pain

Acute and chronic back pain can significantly impact a person’s life, and the treatment method varies based on the root cause. Acute back pain is sudden, often resulting from an accident, while chronic back pain develops gradually, progressively worsening due to a condition or untreated injury. A chiropractor at Maryland Farms Chiropractic in Brentwood, TN, can help provide the pain relief you deserve

.

Causes of Acute Back Pain

Acute back pain is commonly caused by an injury or accident. Acute pain is experienced when soft tissues, such as muscles, tendons, and ligaments, become injured or damaged. It is also possible to experience acute pain from the improper lifting of an object, poor posture, and muscle spasms. 

Treatment for Acute Back Pain

For most people suffering from acute back pain, symptoms tend to resolve independently. At-home treatments for acute back pain may include heating pads, ice packs, and rest. Working with a physical therapist to stretch and strengthen back muscles can help improve acute back pain. Chiropractic adjustments may also help improve acute pain symptoms.  

Causes of Chronic Back Pain

Chronic back pain commonly results from many problems affecting the musculoskeletal system. Some conditions may include osteoarthritis, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and compression fractures. 

Chronic Back Pain Treatment

Most doctors prescribe addictive medications to help with chronic back pain; however, these medications are not designed for long-term use. Chiropractic care can offer multiple treatment options to help with pain management while treating the root cause of the pain without addictive medications. Chiropractic care treatment for chronic back pain may include physical therapy, massage therapy, laser therapy, chiropractic adjustments, and spinal decompression. 

Neuropathy Pain

Neuropathy pain is classified as chronic pain and can be unrelated to an injury or condition. Some nerves can send pain to the brain, signaling back pain when there is no tissue damage or apparent cause. A chiropractor can help treat neuropathy pain through treatments similar to other chronic back pain options; however, some cases of neuropathy may require a more aggressive treatment plan.
